Lionesses’ Star Goalie Earps to Miss Crucial Euro 2025 Clash Against France Due to Hip Injury

Sarina Wiegman faces a considerable setback as England’s prime netminder, Mary Earps, will not take part in Tuesday’s pivotal Euro 2025 qualifying match against France.

Mary Earps, the stalwart guardian for England Women, had to bow out of the team after an unfortunate hip snag.

While competing at St. James’ Park, she relied on crutches post-injury, which struck only eight minutes into Friday’s 2-1 defeat to France.

That day marked her 50th appearance, a milestone disrupted by this mishap.

Earps’ absence has compelled the squad to call up Lucy Thomas from Birmingham City for the away game in Saint-Etienne.

“With heavy heart, I crossed my 50th cap,” Earps conveyed on Instagram. Appreciating the fans’ support, she shared her frustration over the unexpected setback, eyeing a swift comeback after some downtime.

England, currently sitting third in Group A3, is embroiled in a tight race for a berth at next year’s European showcase in Switzerland.

A point adrift of Sweden and five behind group leaders France, the Lionesses aim to shake up the standings.

Their campaign continues with a showdown against Ireland on July 12, followed by a trek to Sweden for the concluding group fixture.
